Positive outcomes after ibogaine detoxification linked to persisting changes in mood and life perspective

“Without adequate support following this treatment, it is quite difficult for people to be successful in their recovery from opioid addiction. Nevertheless, for those that are able to maintain abstinence or reduce their opioid use, they reported improvements in overall health, mood, and their sense of positive motions/perspectives in life, which they attributed at least in part to their ibogaine treatment.”

“Ibogaine-assisted detoxification, like any other potential treatment for addiction, is not a magic bullet. Not only do most people relapse (which is similar to other treatments) but there is an increase in risk associated with traveling to a country where this treatment is unregulated. We found that participants noted difficulties associated with this process, including coming back home and lacking support from the facilities they had traveled to,”  -Alan Kooi Davis, a research fellow at Johns Hopkins Behavioral Pharmacology Research Unit, told PsyPost.
